The Parks and Wildlife Service conducts a year-round program of prescribed burning. These burns are undertaken primarily for property protection, fuel reduction and biodiversity management. To view all proposed prescribed burns check the department's indicative burn plan.
These burns are carefully planned however they may cause some disruptions to walkers and riders. Where prescribed burns impact on the trail, closures and diversions are implemented to ensure the safety of walkers and riders, including temporary camp sites where necessary. These will remain in place until the original trail alignment has been declared safe. For diversions and smoke warnings check Park Alerts
For your safety follow all signs, diversions and instructions from Parks and Wildlife staff and other emergency personnel.
Prescribed burns are dependent on appropriate weather conditions and, as such, burning dates are not available in advance.
